storm behind hurricane katrina seven years ago. president obama is scheduled to visit the new york area next thursday to see the recovery operation firsthand. the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and over again. and expecting different results. so how does this apply to obama's next four years in office? the green companies backed by your taxpayer dollars? they just grow and grow. many of them are hemorrhaging cash by the day. others have gone bankrupt altogether. our next guest is you can expect nothing but the same under this administration. a senior fellow joins us now. robert, always a pleasure to have you on the show. we assumed that it was safe to bet that the president would be doubling down on his green debt in his new administration. i hope he takes a different path. because we have seen solynda and beacon power and a123 systems. it has been extraordinarily costly. i think a better path if he is interested in green technology to reform the research and development efforts at the federal level. so that f there is some breakthrough to be had, the fede
, of course, the next year faced katrina and a collection of disasters. how does the president keep his head down, not be swept away by the moment, and avoid the mistakes of his four predecessors? >> well, i think what is so sobering -- and this isn't a grand historical vision or a legacy moment -- because for him, the reality is going to be around 1:00 today when he comes out and says what he would do about the fiscal cliff. we can all laugh about the term as much as any of you, but the reality is really grim. when i started going through the numbers yesterday of just what taxpayers -- ordinary taxpayers -- are going to face, i had no idea that it wasn't just the bush tax cuts, even though i follow this stuff pretty closely, the minimum tax hitting, of all people, the most people who will be affected by the amt kicking in if congress were to let it happen. and you've been there, so you know that they'll blink at the last moment. but the most people of any state live in new jersey who are the middle-income people, people who make $75,000 a year and have two children will have to pay $4,000 m

relief effort from the red cross since hurricane katrina. >> a long time before things get back to normal. >>> for us, the prospect of a glitch this weekend ahead, huh? >> delicious, yes. i seldom use that term in weather, but, yes, quite that. delicious. very nice weather with plenty of sunshine over the next couple of days. i do think we'll see some clouds from time to time, but i also think sunday is going to be one delicious day. let's take a look and show you how it was earlier today. this is out towards frying pan park and the horses enjoying a little bit of sunshine, although temperatures still a little below average today. the wind blowing, too, and the pigs, the pigs always enjoying it as you make your way out and about today. take a look at the temperatures out there. of course, one of the bad things about frying pan park, always good to get out there and go to the petting zoo. 58 degrees the high temperature today. once again, below average but today was the warmest day in almost two weeks and, yes, of course, it is the warmest day so far in the month of november. tomorrow will

council staff we learned a lot of lessons from hurricane katrina. those were written down. congress was a part of that process. what we learned you have to precoordinate assets. you have to be sure that you're on a video teleconference with the state emergency operations centers, with fema, with the department of energy, making sure that all those resources are ready to go, prestaged, ready to go into the affected area once the storm blows through. in many cases that will increase response time. the federal government says you have to be able to sustain yourselves for about three days and federal support will come to you. in this case it did not. 12 days later we're still without power in many locations. in our case we didn't have fema on the ground until eight days after the storm. tracy: a lot of people on long island without power. a lot of people in new jersey still without power too. at this point, unfortunately there is nothing we can do except wait. what do we do to prevent this happening next time though? should wires be all underground going forward? >> well, depend where y
view, katrina, you saw it, sandy give some impetus to dealing with climate change. i said, in new york, we will pay for climate change one way or another. we can pay for it after each natural disaster -- in new york, we have had three or 4100-year disasters -- or four 100-year disasters. irene, sandy. it will give some impetus to deal with climate change. even if we cannot reach compromise on that, there are lots of things that we can reach compromise on and that would be on the agenda. the fourth thing i put on the agenda, i talked about earlier in reference to your question. maybe we can get some real financial reform. republicans are beginning to rethink super pacs. they have not produced the positive results they hope for and they have produced negative results that they did not expect. >> if a deal is reached before the end of the year, does that remove the need for tax reform, more comprehensive tax reform next year? >> my view is that corporate tax reform should be treated separately. why? to make corporate tax reform work, you should not have revenue increases. you are putting
been compromising. my view, katrina -- sorry -- sandy gave some impetus to dealing with climate change. and i said in new york we're going to pay for climate change one way or another. we can pay for it after each natural disaster. we in new york have had 50 -- sorry -- we have had 300 or -- sorry. phrasing it wrong. we have had in the last three or four years we have had once in a hundred year disasters with irene, with sandy. and so, you know, i think it will give some impetus to deal with climate change, but even if we can't reach compromise on that, there's lots of things in energy that we can reach compromise on and that will be on the agenda. and the fourth thing i'd put on the agenda i talked about earlier in reference to your question, dave. maybe we can get some real financial reform. i think republicans are beginning to rethink super pacs because they haven't produced the positive results they hoped for and negative results that they hadn't expected. >> yes, sir. >> if a deal is reached before the end of the year, as you hope, does that remove the need for tax reform, more co
prevalent during katrina. a lot of people wanted to just go and they knew enough to know that just showing up wouldn't work. so they were trying to not bother the operations and they were coming to the pentagon to say how can we help in what and what can we do? i think that scenario replays itself at various levels all over the world, and so again, i am torn by the need to keep the government out of a local cooperative effort so that the benefits of capitalism can come up with a solution that is efficient, low-cost and philanthropic way supported. you have people confuse with a very limited amount of technology and infrastructure requirements like the use of cell phones and how do you communicate during these kinds of disasters at the local level to say what your requirements are? how would you leverage those technologies to inform and independent group who is dedicated to supporting those kinds of things? that could be the csis and any non-governmental government to apply a bias or an agenda. as much as the government wants to do what it wants to do, it is there because it cares and it wa
